May/June 2004 Page 5 The Developer: Northern Territory Land Development Corporation (NTLDC) Ownership of Glyde Pt to be transferred to NTLDC when development is approved; Created by Act of Parliament in 2003; Composition of the Corporation (one person!): "The Corporation consists of a Chief Executive Officer within the meaning of the Public Sector Employment and Management Act. CEO: Barry Chambers (DIPE)* Appointed by Lands Minister (Dr Burns) *See above re Mr Chamber's recent resignation. The Proponent: Department of Infrastructure, Planning and Environment (DIPE) Formal proponent for Glyde Point industrial estate development for the purposes of EIS assessment. CEO: Barry Chambers* Senior bureaucrat: John Pinney Senior bureaucrat: David Ritchie *NOTE: Mr Chambers has just retired. It remains to be seen if his replacement Ms Sarah Butterworth automatically becomes CEO of the Northern Territory Land Development Corporation (see below). Some questions...for starters! Why, after three years of Labor government, is the CLPs shadowy NT Land Corporation still in existence, hoarding and disposing of what is supposed to be public land? What declarations of conflict of interest have been registered at the meetings of any/all these interwoven bodies? What requirements are there for same? Why are plans cooked up years ago being pushed through as if nothing has changed in the meantime? How much is it going to cost the public to create this industrial estate and who is going to use it? DIPE says it is still working out the cost, and wants the approval to proceed even if no companies have said they would locate there. This is planning 1980's style! In coming months, ECNT will be embarking on a major campaign to protect Glyde Point, including a public meeting in July. Please stay tuned.
